it lacks so many features and Palm has been very slow releasing GSM version that I just got a BlackBerry instead.
If you have had a Pre and had to deal with the slider being loos, you would jump all over the Pixi. The size of the Pre is just a little to fat and when the keyboard is open there are some sharp edges. So for me being a Pre user. I will have to say its time to upgrade
I think this phone is not better than the palm pre as it lacks so many features like wi fi a better camera and many phones so I do not think it will attract many people
what i cant understand why dont palm pre get released o2 im the uk. Reading about it on the site soundz good and reading the review , phoned o2 in the uk they said they have no idea. What i want to know when will it be realesed in the uk.
Dan, 11 Sep 2009"While Palm have still not kept that promise for a GSM Pre..." Err....yeah...they have. GSM... moreNext month? Really? Not according to Palm who this morning were still saying 'in time for the Christmas Holidays' i.e. the week before Christmas when it won't interfere with the cash bonanza that is the cult of the iphone.
"While Palm have still not kept that promise for a GSM Pre..."
Err....yeah...they have. GSM Palm Pre is launching next month in the UK, slower than the US variant admittedly but better late than never. As for not gaining "market appreciation" here, it's widely tipped to be a genuine iPhone beater and will be promoted heavily by O2 (see their most recent sales brochure - page 2 is a big fat Pre advert!)
Iphone meet blackberry ... Palm needs to get back to the drawing board and invest in product design instead of ripping idea's off innovative companies... pathetic.
David, 10 Sep 2009Who the he** wants a smartphone with no GSM, 3G, Wi-fi and a 2mp camera?I know who!!!!!! NOBODY!!!
I hope they provide 3G support on this as it's usless otherwise in Australia.
Who the he** wants a smartphone with no GSM, 3G, Wi-fi and a 2mp camera?
a 2.6" cap touchie and full keyboard in 99g body???
hold on, im going to get some tissues. i just had an orgasm.
Come on Palm ! - all we want is a Palm Treo 650 with 8MP camera with flash and Wifi, is it that difficult ? ?
Announcing a second webOS device? Palm hasnīt even been able to launch the pre and now theyīre coming up with the sissy...erm, pixi???
When will this POC come out? December 32, 3204??? Palm sucks!
Ed, 09 Sep 2009I think you guys are being more than a bit disingenuous when you say 'Let's face it, Palm and ... moreA quick point on Telefonica and O2 exlusive phone launches. In more than one country in the GSM world they have shown themselves to be inept and ill prepared to cope with demand.
Ed, 09 Sep 2009My point was a more general one that GSM Arena have never reviewed ANY Palm model, not just the PreFair point about the fact that Telefonica have yet to release the GSM Pre into the wild over here but thatīs just the point that has me annoyed with Palm themselves. Iīve used Palm PDAs and phones all my life and agree they make an excellent device but why canīt I enjoy a GSM version of the Pre at the same time as the CDMA users? The result is that I am now chomping at the bit for a QWERTY Android phone and letīs face it; there are a plethora of devices about to be released, personally I think weīre gonna see an avalanche of releases in the last quarter / first quarter of next year. So weīre going to have MORE choice very soon. Plus, we are assuredly looking at better expandability, CPU spec and internal RAM. Palm need to address the global market asap. Thatīs their problem.
Agree with point that gsmarena.com got it wrong on the take up of GSM Preīs as well.
Lol! That is the funniest bit of news Iīve read in quite a while! First off... this thing is hideous! Itīs even uglier than the pre... And what about the f@ggotty-@ss name!!! pixi??? They should have called it the "fairy"! And no wifi? I swear, I thought it was April's fools day!!
